We have been talking to Luke from Mozilla this morning at Ravensbourne about the project he is working on, a tool for programming and playing music visually, is designed in a fancy child looking, but we have seen many adults having great fun with it. Really interesting, don't miss him and his team on level 5, you will definitily have fun with them!!

Conversational session with Trisha Prabhu

We sneaked into Trisha's talk (more like a conversation between colleagues). She is 15, from Boston, and developed ReThink! An app to PREVENT cyberbullying. A must-see of this MozFest2015

Hacking Games Workshop by Matteo Menapace

We have been at Matteo's workshop about hacking games, helping us understand being a hacker does not need to be something negative, but should be understood as a way to improve something, either a piece of software, service or even a BOARD GAME.

With tools that helped us develop our algorithmical thinking, this workshop went through different techniques to hack simple games like "rock-paper-scissors", or more complex ones like "Bits n Bytes" and also self-crafted like his prototype "Beesness".

Constructive, and enjoyable workshop that covered aspects of Open Practices and Inclusion.
